Here are a few questions to ask when shopping for a Hot Air Balloon Ride on-line but even over the phone, things to be aware of, and our answers to these same questions :
Does the company you are speaking with actually Own and Operate their own Hot Air Balloons or do they just sell certificates for others to honor? Yes, we own and operate our own Hot Air Balloons. We also strongly recommend purchasing from someone who owns and operates their own Hot Air Balloons, and is familiar with the area in which they operate and isn't just selling Certificates. Conducting Hot Air Balloon Rides in St. Louis, Missouri can be very different than flying in other parts of the country.
If you are buying flight certificates, always ask if it is refundable, transferrable, and if it has an expiration date. Our flight certificates do not expire, and are refundable up to your first scheduled flight date or one year from purchase.
What are their policies for rescheduling and weather events? Especially in St. Louis, weather events happen, and rescheduling is not uncommon, so how is that handled? - We will gladly reschedule you when next available if we have to reschedule due to weather. Anyone who tells you they never reschedule rides in St. Louis, is either pulling a fast one or doesn't fly much around here.
Do they have a refund or exchange policy, and if so, what is that policy? - Ours is simple, if you are changing a passenger, please let us know the new name and passenger weight. All of our certificates are fully refundable up to your first scheduled flight date.
